Coventry swimmers taste success in Aberdeen at National Championships

SWIMMING: COVENTRY swimmers tasted success north of the border at the weekend as the City of Coventry Swimmers travelled to Aberdeen to take part in the Long Course Masters National Championships.

Steve Goult provided the pick of the swimmers as he scooped the silver medal in three of his events and picked up a surprise bronze medal in the 50m backstroke.

The event provided an ideal preparation platform for the 200m breaststroke regular as he continues to prepare for the upcoming World Masters Championships in Budapest this August.

Ev Bailey had to pull out of the 100m breastroke after over doing the 50 breaststroke in a promising time.

Kieron Carroll gained a full set of medals and finally broke the 25 seconds for his 50 metres freestyle while landing the gold medal and a new masters PB time of 24.96.

Carroll’s result not only made him the fastest 50m freestyler in his age group, but also one of the fastest swimmers in Coventry.

Elsewhere Kelly Dory Dughmosh is getting ever closer to breaking her 400m freestyle british record target.

She shaved near a second from her PB to take the gold medal in her main event.

With a Gold medal in the 1500m and a six second PB and gold in the 800m, Kelly is proving that her new distance coaching is paying off.

A close swim saw the promising Coventrian earn silver in the 200m freestyle.

Finally Rebecca Ewers entered and PB’d in all four events.
